Technology from Dow Automotive Systems that is designed to enable the processing speed and recyclability needed to utilise carbon fibre composites in mass production has been selected as a 2018 Automotive News PACE Award finalist.

VORAFUSE P6300 epoxy intermediates are said to offer zero tack and rapid transfer advantages in compression moulding of carbon fibre prepreg.

“One of the biggest challenges with implementing carbon fibre reinforced composites as a lightweight solution for transportation manufacturing is to make them effective in high-volume production scenarios,” explains Dave Bank, R&D Fellow, Dow Automotive Systems. “Working closely with customers and other partners, we have proven the capabilities of VORAFUSE and are optimistic that this solution will work across the industry.”

The PACE Awards recognise supplier innovations that have entered the market and are delivering measurable customer benefits. Finalists include a total of 33 innovations from 27 component and technology suppliers around the world. The winners will be announced in April.
